About Shudipto Dishari

Dr. Shudipto Konika Dishari joined as an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UNL (2016- ). She has been a post-doctoral researcher in chemical engineering and materials science and engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. She graduated from National University of Singapore with a PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (2010).

Throughout her multidisciplinary research career, she has developed a wide spectrum of research experience spanning from energy to biomedical applications. Her research interests include synthsis and development of polymers and polymer based nanomaterials. She is interested to explore how the polymers behave in nanoscale materials and how those propeties can be optimized for renewable energy and biomedical applications. To pursue research on innovative polymer design and understanding of ionomer-catalyst interface, Dr. Dishari has recently received NSF CAREER Award (2018-2023). Her other notable achivements in the recent past includes: Nebraska-EPSCoR First Award and NASA-Nebraska Space Grant.

In recognition of excellence in virus filtration membrane research for development in therapies and medical products, Dr. Dishari has received “Baxter Young Investigator Award” conferred by Baxter Healthcare Corporation. A number of her research works has been highlighted as cover stories and featured as video highlight in well-reputed journals. Dr. Dishari has served as an editor of “Post-doc journal”and editorial board member of “Journal of Materials Science Research.” 

She is a member of NCMN's  "Education and Outreach Committee" and greatly involved in educating middle and high school students, including women and minorities.
